MANILA--James Forrester and Dylan Ababou may finally get more minutes as Ginebra shipped the two wingmen to Barako Bull for the latter's 2015 first round pick.

PBA Commissioner Chito Salud approved the deal between the two recently eliminated clubs on Tuesday.

Ababou only played a total of 24 minutes in his five stints with the Gin Kings in the Commissioner's Cup. Forrester logged in only 17.

Energy coach Koy Banal expressed happiness that he got the two players at his fold again.

Banal told the PBA's website, “They will give us outside arsenal and the stability on the defensive end. I know Dylan and James very well because they both played for me.”

Ababou looks to get his game going after suffering an ACL injury.
